    Chiappa Rhino Revolver

    Any one seen one of these?
    What do you know about Chiappa?
    I was considering a .22 1911 from them for use as a toy when I found this. One of the reasons for the spacy look is that the barrel is aligned with the chamber at the bottom of the cylinder instead of the one at the top. Supposed to help with recoil and muzzle flip?

    If you do a search you'll find another thread on these. It's an interesting design, I think it's pretty neat myself. It's gotta help with muzzle flip.

    Sorry, I did a search for Chiappa instead of Rhino and it didn't come up.

    It's so ugly looking; I have to have one so it doesn't feel left out when all the other pretty guns go to new homes.

    Its a GREAT idea in theory. I have no idea if it really performs any better but I would love to try it out. The look has grown on me. I want someone to buy it so we can get a report.

    Yup, the more I see it, the more I like it.

    It's just not right! Revolvers are suppose to have the barrel align with the top cylinder. That's just the way it's always been and suppose to be. If we start having guns with weird setups like this where will it stop? Before you know it some one will try making guns out of plastic instead of steel.

    As an American of Italian ancestry, it makes me proud to see such innovation coming out of Italy!

    When I saw it for the first time, my initial thought was - "Why didn't anyone think of this sooner?"

    Hopefully, it will work as advertised!

    In the very rare cases where a revolver explodes, the top of the cylinder and top strap comes off and the explosion goes up. In these rare cases it is even more rare for the shooter to suffer serious injuries. I'm just not sure if the low barrel and bottom firing cylinder is of actual benefit or just done to be different for the sake of being different.

    Said it on the other post, will say it again. UGLY. I wonder how gritty the cylinder hinge will get being right by the chamber that fires. Well at least the top strap won't have a problem with flame cutting.

    I think if you name a gun after something then It should be able to disable that animal etc. Rhino irritater may be more accurate

    Most countries with really big game require a rifle in .40 or larger.
    Some like Mozambique will let you squeak by with a .375H&H as the smallest allowed.

    All handguns are Rhino irritaters :)

    I emailed the company to see when they would be out - response:
